Amazing! You always have great results! Thanks for sharing! Are these for sale or were the commissioned for someone or will you be filling them yourself?

PS - I LOVE YOUR SIG!

Commissioned. I have three more in the works too.

Ha ha. Yeah, everyone thinks I am an old man, possibly named Walter, or a woman. So I thought I would clear that up.

Well played Tim. Ha ha.

Matt, I can give you some ideas via PM if you like, but I will not publicly discuss it. Partially for my clients and partially because I am still working details out. Likley my costs will go up as I do more. I am doing a custome 60 gallon palidarium right now too.

The ferns are ET ferns. I love those things.

Thanks Wayne! Yeah these are really looking good! Do you find that you are mostly selling these to people who intend to keep darts in them or are folks just interested in the plants?

There is only one I am doing where they are not sure if they want frogs or not, but they think they will. The others have all been for frogs. A few first time keepers, others more experienced keepers. I plan on working on a custom line of Orchid tanks though to market to the large Orchid crowd in my area. I think those would go well.

Orchid specific tanks would be cool and would sell, maybe you could eventually tap into the carnivorous plant market too. Do some nepenthes tanks, with Asian orchids of course. Lots of ideas and possibilities.........

Thanks Kyle Yeah just have glass cut to fit over most of the top.

Josh, I think I might be vending an Orchid show in Santa Barbara this Summer. I will let everyone know how it goes if I do. Carnivorous would be really cool too.

My newest tanks are fully custom glass tanks, front opening. Here is a 18" cube and a 30"x18"x24" future palidarium. I think you can make out the glass retaining wall.





From the side.


From the top looking down.

So is the paludarium a front opening tank as well or does it have front access? Also - this may be a silly question - but which way is the front of that tank?

Thanks Devanny. I think the 18" cube will turn out very nice.

Matt, yes it has sliding glass doors. The picture is a bit confusing, I took it from behind. The glass wall goes in a V shape from the fron to the back. It's an interesting design. Basically land on the sides and in the back and a pond in the middle.

Wayne, thank you so much for sharing your pictures of your recent tanks. They are amazing like always. I am still waiting on you to come over here to the east coast!

By the way.. my Exo 36' is in the works finally.. I have some funds to play around with and I have printed out your book you emailed me for reference!

*sigh* your tanks always look so fantastic... I feel kinda bad that I got that one tank of Brian's months ago... (especially since I still haven't done anything with it!)
Good job(s) as usual!

Hey Wayne, tanks look great, as they always do. Do you happen to remember the name of that begonia (at least I believe it is one) in the 2nd and 3rd picture. It is towards the back, on the ground, right side of the tanks. Thanks
Dave

Either I need to work on it or trade it to someone who might use it better
I've been checking into tanks and looking at builds for so long now and I'm still not sure how I want to do anything, but I do have plants that are twiddling their thumbs (well, ok, they have no thumbs) waiting to finally be placed... poor things!

Thank you. That is the smaller version, Polly I think. In my experience it does not grow too tall for a taller tank. That tank is 24" tall, so it should be fine. In time if it is too much we will just swap it out.

I'll say it again - that ET fern is where it's at! It's a great fern to use as a focal point and I you use it very nicely! I also really like the arrangement of the sticks in the front of the 18 Cube. Gives it a lot of depth.

Keep churnin' em out!

Cheers,

I really like the ET ferns a lot. In fact I added them to an older tank and it made a big difference. Plus there at least two board members selling them now. One thing to keep in mind, they like to be kept moist. If you let them dry out they will die back, especially after being newly planted. They have always come back for me but it is slow and you want to avoid that, so keep them watered well. I will try to keep the tanks coming if I keep getting customers. It's amazing though. I have not advertised at all except on the board and at a few shows. I have now sold ten tanks, with one in the works and possible two more on the way. If I start to market them it will be interesting to see how it goes. I want to vend some Orchid shows one day soon.
